We are currently looking for staffing for the following positions for the Fall 2016: Roller Skating Teacher (Saturdays), After School Club staff (20 hours a week, daytime during school year).
If you wish to apply for a job at Orbit Skate Center, you might want to know what we look for in a staff member. An outgoing personality is a must and skating ability is a plus. We can’t teach employees to love people and children, that’s built into our nature. Our primary goal is to make sure that our guests enter the building saying “WOW” and leave at the end of their visit saying the same thing. We value our employees very highly and put great effort into training and teaching each person to work at their potential and finding suitable duties that match their personality. There is no discrimination in our hiring practices, not by race, gender, religion, or age. We do have dress requirements and appearance requirements just like Disney or Starbucks. Showing up in ragged jeans, with excessive facial tattoos, piercings, hair colors, mohawks, gang related clothing, or other things that add up to an unappetizing appearance will generally keep you from working at the rink. Excellent hygiene is a must.
